Little Mix's 6th studio album is finally here!

I want a place to collect all your first impressions so that when you want to look back on it after a year or 6 months even, you don't have to wade through 60 pages of their album thread aha.

What are your first impressions? Do you like the album? Is it underwhelming? Better than you expected?

Fave tracks? Any songs you think will be growers?

First listen through ranking and overall thoughts:

01. Happiness
02. Break Up Song
03. Sweet Melody
04. Gloves Up
05. Holiday
06. Confetti
07. Breathe
08. Mess (Happy 4 U)
09. Not A Pop Song
10. If You Want My Love
11. Nothing But My Feelings
12. Rendezvous
13. My Love Won't Let You Down

---

I like the top 10 a lot/they have the most potential to grow, the bottom 3 I'm not really sure where they'll be after several listens, but I'm not feeling them too much on first listen.

As I've said before, this album really showcases their strength in the pop melodies and choruses! SO good. However, at least 70% of the tracks could've had an extra chorus or something... just so short sad.gif

Loving this right now. I was a little nervous when people were saying the top half of the album is far superior (you're not wrong), but I think I was expecting the absolute worst for the 2nd half, when that wasn't the case.
M(H4U) is proving to be a real grower and so is Nothing But My Feelings! So we'll see where they end up in a weeks time lmao.

I am not impressed yet. But I am not an album person, so the fact that Sweet Melody is there already makes it my favorite ;-) Kidding, but yeah I am very happy with the few very high highs!

Too soon to give scores, but my ranking would be:

Best song of the year
1. Sweet Melody

Love
2. Break Up Song
3. Happiness

Like
4. Gloves Up (This might actually grow on me a lot)
5. Holiday

Just OK
6. Nothing But My Feelings
7. Mess (Happy 4 U)
8. Not A Pop Song
9. Breathe
10. Confetti

Dislike/Won't Go Back
11. If You Want My Love
12. Rendezvous
13. My Love Won't Let You Down

So much better than LM5

The only song I didnít like was My Love Wonít Let You Down

I wonder what songs will get remixes with a rapper for the next singles ?

I think Confetti stood out for me the most.

Here's my mark out of 10 for each track:

01. Break Up Song - 10/10
02. Holiday - 9/10
03. Sweet Melody - 10/10
04. Confetti - 8/10
05. Happiness - 10/10
06. Not a Pop Song - 7/10
07. Nothing But My Feelings - 7/10
08. Gloves Up - 8/10
09. A Mess (Happy 4 U) - 8/10
10. My Love Won't Let You Down - 7/10
11. Rendezvous - 6/10
12. If You Want My Love - 6/10
13. Breathe - 7/10


Well it is better than 'LM5' but not all that much, this should have just been a 10 track album, scrapping the last 3. Apart from the 3 singles & 'Happiness' there's not really all that much to offer here.

My ranking of their studio albums so:

01. Salute - 9.142
02. Glory Days - 8.843
03. Get Weird - 8.666
04. DNA - 8.333
05. Confetti - 7.823
06. LM5 - 7.769

Ranking them because Iíve only listened twice so itíd be a bit far-fetched to give concrete scores:

01 // Sweet Melody
02 // Break Up Song
03 // Not A Pop Song
04 // Gloves Up
05 // Happiness
06 // Confetti
07 // If You Want My Love
08 // A Mess (Happy 4 U)
09 // Breathe
10 // Nothing But My Feelings
11 // Holiday
12 // Rendezvous
13 // My Love Wonít Let You Down

Sweet Melody slaps and sad itís not doing more chart-wise, their best single since Touch, Break Up Song only slightly behind. Not A Pop Song is catchy af, doesnít exactly have the most creative lyrics but the production reminds me of Ellie Goulding - Close To Me and the chorus is infectious. Towards the bottom I donít know what they were thinking releasing Holiday - itís pretty pale, and Rendezvous has the same effect as Red Planet did on me where itís the sensual R&B song that does not an awful lot for me. MLWLYD I can hardly remember after both listens - they do ballads well but itís pretty monotone.

I really like 'Confetti'. I have been quite critical of them since the end of the LM5 era because I really wanted better from them than 'Bounce Back' and 'Break Up Song' and thankfully I think this album delivers. I think 'My Love Won't Let You Down' is probably the only song I would skip, and perhaps 'Breathe', but the rest of the album is extremely listenable.

The production in particular is a highlight. Every song just sounds SO GOOD.

  1. Sweet Melody
  2. Happiness
  3. Holiday
  4. Break Up Song
  5. If You Want My Love
  6. Confetti

My ranking so far:

Amazing
01. Sweet Melody
02. Happiness

Great
03. Break Up Song
04. Rendezvous
05. Confetti
06. If You Want My Love
07. Gloves Up

Good
08. Not A Pop Song
09. Holiday
10. Breathe
11. A Mess (Happy 4 U)

Average
12. Nothing But My Feelings
13. My Love Won't Let You Down

I'd say this is a very consistent album, "Sweet Melody" and "Happiness" are two of their best songs in years. I'm not sure yet where I would place it in an overall rank of their albums. I don't think it's better than "Salute" or "DNA" but I'd put it on par with "LM5" in 3rd or 4th. I love that this album seems authentic and very "them".

i dont think i've ever even posted in this forum before but this album is too good not to...

i wasn't even intending to listen to it tbh, i don't dislike little mix like they have some real bangers but i've never bothered to listen to anything other than the singles i know i already like but they were playing confetti in hmv when i was in the other day and i heard gloves up to rendezvous and was shook by how much i was really loving it laugh.gif we nearly bought the album there and then but decided to hold off and blast it on spotify as soon as we got home - (highly recommend a kỉtchen confetti dance party while making dinner btw x) and well that was three days ago and i've listened to nothing but this album since :')

this is how i'd rank them atm!

1. gloves up
2. rendezvous
3. confetti
4. break up song
5. a mess (happy 4 u)
6. breathe
7. if you want my love
8. sweet melody
9. nothing but my feelings
10. holiday
11. not a pop song
12. happiness
13. my love won't let you down
